Picture-Perfect with Timeless Architecture
Enjoy a piece of Burlingame’s past at this special offering filled with history and romance dating back to 1916 – a time when San Francisco’s elite used homes such as this for summer residences. The home’s proud heritage is a stellar example of the early Arts and Crafts movement introduced by its shingled exterior and classic covered front porch. Inside, original details recall the fine workmanship of the era – rich wood millwork and wainscot, fine hardwood floors, glass doorknobs, and period lighting. Numerous updates add luxurious amenities to the remodeled chef’s kitchen and baths. Behind the scenes, tech features have also been added, such as the Ring video front doorbell, Nest thermostat, and wiring for EV charging.
Nowhere is the architectural character more evident than in the impressive foyer and distinguished formal rooms that present the kind of elegance only time can bestow. Built-in cabinetry with leaded-glass fronts in both the living room and dining room are as beautiful as they are functional. The kitchen has been reimagined with period style finished with Carrara marble and quality stainless steel appliances. Added living space can be found on the basement level where a spacious fully finished room offers flexibility for play or fitness needs. Personal accommodations comprise 3 bedrooms, including a luxurious master suite, plus there is a customized office for work-at-home needs.
